Serendipitously fulfilling a goal

Murphy and I drove up to the Uintas Monday afternoon about 2pm.  As we approached the Nobletts rest stop where we usually get out and chase potguts (I use the bathroom), I saw this big bird flying at me in the distance. Since there was no traffic on the road, I stopped the car on the highway, jumped out and took these photos!  The Golden Eagle circled us once, just to check us out. She/he has a large mammal in it's claws, I cannot quite see what it is.  I have wanted to get some decent Golden photos for a long time, but usually they consist of their backs on top of a telephone pole! This was different and a rush.
